added the phrase for those units not able to save, "the owner must make good-faith efforts to ensure that before any modification to the sale price is made, that the owner during a six -month period is making a good-faith effort to sell the unit under the current program." similar to the first point, we're clarifying that the bmr rental pricing is at 65% ami, also having included a range in the earlier version. we're provide something flexibility in terms of the annual certificate if he annual certificate if he annual certificate if he xinc c: program filesxinc c: stenoprogram filesxinc c: stenoprogram filesxinc c: stenoprogram filesxinc c: ificate.trn /r/t}{( recertification of income. the fourth point compliance is referenced to the land dedication to give additional instruction to the planners to identify in the review process whether the land dedication applies to a single site or multiple sites in cases where there are multiple parcels being dedicated under the land dedication model. also under the land dedication model, we make clear that the approval letter that moe issues ca
the life of the program. i think you heard a lot of numbers, 1200 units,. that is a good track record. as you all know the housing trust fund was a big package. and within that, and i think really smartly, we don't see it as a giveaway, but we see it as a very intentional and thoughtful policy. it incents on-site bmr to the developer for exchange to producing units, bricks and mortar, permanently affordable housing and developers are rewarded for that. so we should see an increase in the number of bmrs because of that. there is also a piece of trailing legislation that will come before you presumably in the 1st quarter of next year. we think it's a smart idea to make sure that the program is as successful as possible. the idea is to allow more of a range of pricing both of the rental and for-sale, up to a cap, dealing with the low and moderate income categories and then basically vary the number of units that are required, according to the pricing. so you are still getting the same obligation in terms of cost, but you are allowing more variety of the pricing. again, smart stuff. j
nothing wrong with a building that develop these 27 units, brings 27 new families that will add vitality to the neighborhood. i think that is a very valuable improvement and we have been done the road about the church and how expensive it would be to try to retrofit it. it doesn't economically seem to make a lot of sense. and this is a private project, too. this is not a city-owned project. this is not a project being done by an affordable non-profit. this is a private project and there is -- they are responsible to be receptive to the neighborhood and build something that is appropriate to the neighborhood and is supported by the neighborhood. and protected light and air and other things, but they should have the ability to put the type of project that they wish to put there, and have that ability as along as it's not deleterious to the neighborhood. >> commissioner borden? >> this project has certainly come aways. it's ridiculous in my personal view that there weren't these kind of conversations before. at this point i don't think that we're ready to take up this project. i think t

as in keeping with the neighborhood character of tall multi-unit buildings." what about the neighborhood character that isn't next door to the building? what about the neighborhood character of people like us on jackson street on which there are multiple buildings that face this view? we're all affected by this one owner, one singular addition for one families. we're not talking about adding more space for families, but a penthouse for some owner who will block the view and dress decrease the value for all of us in the neighborhood. this is part of the character of the city. you can't encroach by building more and more higher and higher buildings. there was supposed to be a pre-application meeting. nothing. i went away for thanksgiving. i came back there was no notice. a neighbor sent me a xerox saying did you know there was a meeting about what was happening? i had no idea. there wasn't a meeting to discuss it and we were barely notified that, in fact, they were doing it. for these reasons i ask the planning commission to please put a stop to the project or at least to stop it right

u.s. banks offline one day, one bank after another. if the united states and israel bomb iran next year to stop the nuclear program i think we can say with high confidence that iran will retaliate. since israel or united states have attacked their homeland iran will attack in our homeland. not with terrorism but with cyber war, knocking out banking prehaps, electricity, causing havoc and getting away with it because we cannot defend successfully today against that kind of attack. [applause] >> that's a sobering thought to start a conversation with. as it happened, there were two pages in this week's "economists" that you should have on this subject on cyber war and i think it is helpful, if you can walk us through what exactly is meant by cyber war. you, yourself, mention cyber crime, cyber espionage there is a blurring of the lines. what do you mean by cyber war? >> you can rebbe using the word chuw. criber crime which is successful -- cyber crime which is successful. the cyber espionage which i think is the most serious thing today, that is the theft not 06 money but information,

certainty to retain its faith in the united states? >> well, i think you can reconcile lots of these in a growing economy. i think that's critical, ali. a lot of these inconsistencies can be reconciled if the economy were growing. it is when the pie starts to shrink or doesn't grow fast enough that these become so divisive and become paralyzinpa. we know lots of companies that have strong balance sheets, that have lots of cash on their balance sheets, but they're not investing. ask them why and they say we don't know what the environment looks like. tell us what the environment looks like so we can calculate the potential return on our investments and we'll invest. if uncertainty prevails, the risk premium is very high and proi yao price out a lot of investment activity that's good for everybody. >> or they might go somewhere elsewhere they have certainty even though it might not be a preferential investment environment. all of this fiscal cliff madness is about spending and revenue. in other words, what you would call a budget. there is nothing more broken in washington tha
persecution. it was one of the original 13 colonies of the united states and has a rich literary culture steeped in history. with the help of our local cable partner, cox communications, booktv brings you interviews and tours of the area all weekend long from our recent visit. >> my name is morgan grefe, and i'm executive director of the rhode island historical society, and we're in the stacks of the rhode island historical society library on the east side of prove department. we have an assortment of -- providence. we have an assortment of books. the first few are actually related to roger williams, probably the most famous founder of rhode island. there were more than one for the colony of rhode island, is so roger williams gets the most attention, and these books are some of the reasons why. the first book we're going to look at today is called "the key into the language of america." and it was published in 1643. it's an origin binding, so it is kept in this case. this book is 1643, and it is the first-ever dictionary of an indian language in english. this is an original printing, pri
of this country. what is so important for economic growth in the united states of america is capital, is people having the money in their pockets to be able to invest, innovation and the growth of small businesses and other businesses and corporations. but what you see happening right now is a redistribution of that wealth through taxation. when you look at the affordable care act and the fact that you are going to have capital gains taxes and dividend taxes part of that, health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts, being taxed largely. when have you such things as real estate and financial transaction tax and medical expenses all of a sudden, taxed. that's on top what you have are already seeing with the affordable care act. you can't go above 50 employees or you go into a different category. what we see right now, greta, is the tax code used as a punitive measure to grow washington, d.c., to grow bigger government and redistribute wealth, based upon their ideological beliefs. >> one of the biggest expenses in the federal government does include some of our more impoverished neighbo
direction in fairness, right after this break. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. >>> all right. if it's saturday morning, it's tax policy here on "up." we're talking about the deal that was struck this past week to avert the so-called fiscal cliff. i want to give people a sense of the size of the tax increase we're talking about. it's about .2% of "gameday." .2% of gdp, take a look at historical comparison. the big tax rate that ronald reagan did in 1982 was 1% of gdp. if you look at the first clinton budget which we remember as an iconic moment of raising taxes, that was .6% of gdp. so this is in the historical sense quite a relatively low amount of tax hiking in an historic al perspective of raising other taxes. this to me before we went to break i said was a big question.
become good citizens and free people in the united states. but when he got back to the united states, things changed. he came back with his daughter, pat c. it turned out she needed a dowry because she met her husband, thomas mann randolph and they decided to get married in a hurry from the only way jefferson could set them up in the household was to give them land and a lot of slaves. he gave his daughter 25, little and big. he began to think of rebuilding monticello and he needed money they needed to rely on to retrain displaced worse. he suddenly called upon them to acquire a faster read new skills, which they did very, very quickly. so when i was following jefferson to the documents alone my own timeline, i came across a document that disturbs many people since they put it in print, but not as much as it disturbs me when i found it. in a detailed financial memo, jefferson was kind of profits and losses of virginia plantations when it suddenly occurred to him there's a phenomenon in which he perceived a monticello but it never measured he preceded enclosed in brackets, but jeffers
that it should be the policy of the united states to give the sanctions or persecution of assistance. so he writes back to him to the conversation of the congregation. if you are in legislative business, if you work for someone come you don't want to annoy them too much. you just go on and whatever else you have to do. so there's a lot of rhode island history, we have a lot of experience here. i think one of the things about the book and the quotations is my sense that you can be engaged as a citizen and voter and public voice and be engaged in your community. however you choose to do so. i think it is inherently american to see ourselves as citizens and having an active role in our community and society and politics. so a lot of these quotes focus on that relationship. a structure of government. how it works. frustrations, the occasional moments of glory. what people have talked instead about it. and i hope that the book encourages both with a little bit of patience. it's not just a reference work. it's not just the place where you go look for a quote to open a speech. it is more something
to environmental defense. and i believe it is probably the most accessful base conversion in the united states. if you haven't been to the presidio, i think you should try and make that. if you're from out of town, it's a spectacular transition there. so, these golden gate national parks that i happen to be the superintendent of has now become after 40 years the second most visited national park in our country. we get 14 million people a year that come to our parks. it has spectacular coastline, includes muir wood, alcatraz, we get to tell the stories, stories about essentially what you and your predecessors did this this area. our headquarters, fort mason, was the fisherman's wharf area was the port of embarkation for the wars in the pacific. just this week we brought in a world war ii 16-inch bottle ship gun to the marine head lands to put it up at battery townsly which would have been the pinnacle of coastal artillery in world war ii. so, we now have a canon or artillery collection that spans in our park that spans from the civil war to the cold war, including a preserve 19-missile base. so
is an eagle. the eagle holds an olive branch to show that united states will always seek peace. let me say not only peace, but the united states will always seek solutions to problems. we're a pragmatic people that like to have a problem [speaker not understood] and do something about it. and the other talon the eagle holds arrows to show that the united states understands that if you're going to be successful and effective in seeking peace, you must be strong. and i would say strong, and i'll use that word a little bit more loosely and say competent. you must be able to do things. so, if you take that image and you have objectives on the one talon and capability on the other, and you marry them together, that's what we in the united states have been doing, particularly since the end of world war ii. then there we were having propelled the three worlds to victory. the other of us having seen we had an aggressive adversary on our hands and looking back what a horrible last century or so, we had to do better. and we did it by this iteration of objectives and capabilities. and we put together

. and those four cases involved units in my building and the building next door, but there were no postings. when i got to the hearing and i saw those cases, i never received them in 2009. i had no knowledge of them whatsoever. when i got the cases, i went upstairs and got the cases. i immediately noticed that all four of them contained items. i went into -- i was in a bankruptcy -- i have to backtrack a little bit. i bought this r -- this was originally a 6 unit building on church. i bought it in 1990 and i was warned by the former owners that i had very difficult tenants and they had been partners for 30 years and they were selling because they couldn't handle the people. and i was [speaker not understood], and i thought i'll be able to deal with the problems. but they were very difficult tenants and i gave a legitimate increase in 1994 and they called the housing department. they got three other units to complain plus the building where the fire was, 33 56 24th street. * and i had three n.o.v.s filed there. there were rent strikes. i had 16 death threat calls by the same person, hanging

govern the united states from one house of the congress and that is something that i think the newcomen enthusiastic, young, committed members of his congress do not understand. they only control one house of congress. you can stop them blocked, which is, i think something that you're conservative you'd want to do to prevent some of the more expansive liberal legislation from happening. the problem they have now with the debt ceiling is this is again playing roulette. what they have to do is they have to have a caucus united on a simple demand. whatever it is, $1 in spending cuts for every $1 in debt increases, a balanced budget amendment, but something. they also made a tactical throw back. if they do not, they will get rolled. >> charles' advice is thoughtful, but when asked if they would accept $10 for $1, everyone said it was unacceptable. we are in a position where we'd like to take tough positions but we do not like to make tough calls. >> i think we will see something inherently different. i think the president is serious when he says he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling.
as an opportunity for leverage to get those spending cuts that they didn't just get. the president of the united states says he's not going to play ball on that. he may unilaterally raise the debt and may lower the debt and there are a few options on the table so we'll have to see how that plays out. >> do you think he might invoke the constitution to prevent congress from holding him hostage? >> we have to see. the white house pretty much shut that down in december and november when there were discussions of possibly doing that especially when liberal democrats were suggesting he should do it and he had proposed and it was quickly shut down the possibility of being able to do this in the future without congressional approval and that was shut down not only by republicans, but also democrats who said how dare he think about it. i think it would be a radical move and only because there was some serious gridlock. >> jonathan, let's turn our focus now to the speaker. we covered speaker boehner. this is what the former speaker of the house had to say about him. let's take a listen on the other side.
argue that companies that put their headquarters outside the united states are ripping off the taxpayer. that's because our tax rates are so i. among other reasons as we spend so much money and wasted on programs like sending these jobs elsewhere. this is to protect child labor, help unions. it's just ridiculous. neil: what i've long admired by you and your group and what you have done as president of citizens the, you put a magnifying glass on this. my only advice to you my friend is get a bigger magnifying glass because now it's out of control. out of control. >> absolutely. looking just at job training programs, 47 of them in the federal government. we spend 18 billion per year, and only five of them have an impact study which means that if someone gets a job and is enrolled in that program no one has any idea why that person got that job. less than half, the performance review. the unemployment for disabled people, that kind of help is also duplicative. even when the government wants to elp people, they fall over themselves creating new programs to solve the problem, and that's the

physicians get together. look, if you're the president of the united states, you've got no business down the steep in the weeds. jimmy carter got way into the wee, so he is writing we meet these minor interventions by physicians. and that was his problem. he got so into the weeds that he forgot the president job is to tell the big picture. it's easy to see jimmy carter's real problem was he was not good at articulating the big picture. what you don't see until you get into the archives and i think when people read her book, they will get a sense of this. the president as an individual, his personality is really driving this kind of detailed look. so that is an aspect of the presidency in health care. the individual really just think spyware. >> here's a look at upcoming book fairs and festivals happening around the country. >> charles kupfer come to associate american studies professor at harrisburg. the author of a new book, "indomitable will: turning defeat into victory from pearl harbor to midway" focusing on the first half of world war ii, what is the thesis of your book? >> i'm tryi
resource center elegies of tomorrow in factories to build this staff in the united states. not just energy, but the stimulus is going to drag our antiquated health care system into the digital era said that your doctor might not kill you with his chicken scratch handwriting. by 2015, every american will have an electronic medical record from which really should improve care and reduce cost and as a down payment on health care reform. this included the most ambitious education reform in decades. had the largest infrastructure investments since eisenhower. the largest research investment after. the largest low-cost tax cut since reagan went to more than 95% of the country and less than 10% country noticed it. but in my book i do try to get deep into the bowels of the white house and the backgrounds of capitol hill, but also to be a fly on the wall on the energy department weatherization division, actually known as the turkey farm. add to the local high-speed real meetings in the central valley where i saw obama called it replaced. i did spend some time in that way to think he's too fancy sil
integrated the bricks are and how much exposure that have. it is dependent on the united states and europe. let me pick my own continent, africa. less than 2% of foreign investments. i think there will be a lot of domestic demand. look at how things are trading in the local markets rather than being into credit to the west. >> it doesn't depend on commodity prices? >> it is not entirely the case. today there are about 1000 stocks that trade in africa. if people look at africa, they are missing out on one of the biggest trades that is occurring. at the performance of the markets in nigeria and kenya. they are among the best performers driven by the banks in terms of economic development. story has been replicated in peru and sri lanka. >> we know that china is slowing. i do not think it is a hard landing. they are managing themselves out now. china is the biggest buyer of these raw commodities. >> let's focus on china. they are the biggest and most important of the emerging markets. i 8 cents determinism in your view -- i sense determinism in your view. to break up the domestic monopoly. do
federal officials to do more, along with the president of the united states and congress to act. and, in fact, i joined over 750 other mayors across this country, using social media and the technology that's available to us today to signal a demand to our congress that we really need a plan and a plan and an action to follow that, to ban these assault weapons and to make sure that we do everything we can to create a higher level of safety throughout the country. assault weapons and the types of things that we've seen in the hands of people who are doing evil or can do evil really have no place, in the home or in the schools or in our streets. and, so, with that we ask ourselves what we can do locally. i also want to recognize the three state senators, senator de leon, state senator leland yee and state senator ted gains, all three of which are sponsoring some five different pieces of state legislation aimed at banning assault weapons and munitions, getting higher levels of background checks and registries, and also i think senator gains is attempting to also make sure that those that
